Mozilla reveals the Firefox of the future?

Mozilla has unveiled a spectacular new concept browser, dubbed Aurora.

The bleeding-edge browser is part of a new Mozilla Labs initiative, in which the open-source foundation is encouraging people to contribute ideas and designs for the browser of the future.

The demonstration video of the Aurora browser, created by design firm Adaptive Path, shows a highly advanced way of collaborating data gathered on the web.

Data gathered from the web - such as weather reports - are collated as 'objects' that can be dragged and dropped on to the desktop and dynamically manipulated. The video shows two people working in different offices comparing rain reports. In the demonstration Alan invites Jill to join him on a weather report page, where they each highlight important bits of the page for each other.

The video then shows Jill entering a 3D visual bookmarking system in which related pages are grouped by cells, modelled after cells in the human body. Recently opened pages appear closer to the screen, and gradually fall back the longer they're ignored.

The author searches through sports, entertainment and weather cells, as well as those of her contacts, before pulling up the page she wants and dragging it onto the existing page, where it automatically overlaps comparing the two data sets.

Potentially the most interesting thing about the video is how integrated everything

appears, with desktop tasks and an instant messaging utility all linked directly into the browser interface.

Just watching the First Video I am absolutely at a loss ><, haha seems very complicated indeed... Sorta tempted ot just test it out, but dunno how long it'll take to get used to whenever it is out for Testing.

Is this aurora concept the same as weave and prism which will be implemented in Firefox 4?

Or is this even one step further?

EDIT: I think aurora combines all the technologies Mozilla Labs is researching.

Just visit:http://labs.mozilla.com/

They sure are researching some wacky stuff!

I doubt that when they get to developing it, that it will be like that. They want to use people's ideas and I think nobody will like its complicacy.

I think the GUI looks nice, don't like that bubble's layout yet, they should change it's color. Anyways i hope they will improve the GUI over the next year.
